HOUSTON - Houston ISD has placed an elementary school teacher on leave.
Robert Peri, the Memorial Elementary teacher accused of having child porn, would allegedly send and receive the images through his email, investigators say.
According to investigators, Peri also admitted to having hundreds of pictures on his computer at his home in Sugar Land. They say he also logged into the email with the child pornography from his work computer.
Peri is facing multiple charges.
There is no confirmation yet if any children on campus were involved.
The school left a voicemail for parents on Wednesday. Memorial Elementary is asking parents or students with information to come forward immediately. HISD says the teacher was from Memorial Elementary school and they are cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation.
